A Classic Trip!

Mrs Drummond’s F11 Classics students visited the British Museum earlier this term, the first senior Classics trip for 2 years - I'm not sure who was more excited, the children or Mrs Drummond!. Their first stop was the Nero Exhibition, which is not on the Classics syllabus but a fascinating insight into how reputation can be forged on both truth and lies! Next the students were able with the aid of a prompt booklet, to visit galleries housing relevant artefacts from the Greek and Roman eras, including prescribed sources from the GCSE syllabus. Despite the Parthenon Sculptures not being accessible (they'd had a flood!), this didn't dampen enthusiasm and a fantastic day was had by all.
